Default Removing Brake Dust From Chrome Clad Wheels

For those that go a few weeks between washing and get the brake dust really stuck to the plastic cladding.
Was washing my truck yesterday and was having a heck of a time getting the brake dust off areas of the front wheels. Had an idea, ran in and grabbed my wife's Mr. Clean Extra Power Magic Eraser. The wheels came spotless with little to no effort at all.

Don't know if it will work on other types of wheels but mine look like brand new. Super cheap only like 2 or 3 dollars in the super market.

Meguiars as a spray on wheel cleaner that works awesome for me. No scrubbing just wipe em down when you wash your truck, sray thier stuff on and wash off in a few minutes. Spotless everytime

If you cean your wheels really well and then put a good sealant or wax on them, the brake dust usually will not stick to the wheels. What little dust you'll have on the wheels will generally wash off with just water.

I treat mine with a product called "Wheel Wax" and have never had an issue keeping them clean. This is after three winters,
